Every variant of Corona will now be detected, US scientists have prepared a new way of testing, the name given to CoVarScan

American scientist prepared rapid Kovid-19 test.

Research published recently in the Journal of Clinical Chemistry suggests that the test is as accurate as other methods used to treat COVID-19.

US scientists have prepared a rapid Kovid-19 test. Through this test, all the variants of the currently present SARS-CoV-2 virus can be detected within a few hours. This test has been named CoVarScan. This test can detect eight hotspots of SARS-CoV-2 virus. SARS-CoV-2 It is because of this that Kovid-19 happens. Researchers at the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center in the US tested CoVarScan on samples collected from more than 4,000 patients. This test may change the definition of Kovid test in the coming time.

Research published recently in the Journal of Clinical Chemistry suggests that the test is as accurate as other methods used to treat COVID-19. It can successfully differentiate between all existing variants of SARS-CoV-2. “By using this test, we can very quickly find out which variants are in people and whether new variants are emerging,” said Jeffrey Sorrill, assistant professor at UT Southwestern and senior author of the study. He said, when we are dealing with variants that respond differently during treatment, it also has an impact on individual patients.

Difficult to detect variants of Kovid in testing

There are many other testing methods available for the Kovid-19 test. However, they usually detect either the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2 or small molecules found on the surface of the virus. But it is impossible to detect variants through them. In addition, many researchers believe that these tests are not reliable enough to detect certain variants. Some are not even able to detect the variants coming in the future. Scientists use genome sequencing to find out which variant is inside a Kovid patient.

Current Testing Expensive Process

This process of detecting variants is very expensive and requires better equipment. It is only through these that it is ascertained which variant is there in the body. Eight regions of Kovid can be detected through CoVarScan. The team that prepared it collected samples named after 4000 people. These included both Kovid infected and healthy people. The corona that surfaced in December of 2019, even though it has calmed down in some parts. But due to its frequent variants, the tension of the world increases.
